Chuck, you might be right and I might be wrong - I'm only assuming these pics of Dave's came from outside Redwood - might have been at Lippert?

I have been on the phone with the service at the dealer where I got it from, I took photos of everything and sent to them and they are working on who is going to pay. And yes I am hoping the 5 year warranty pays because the extended I have a $50.00 deductible. So at least I am hopping one works. I did find out that one of the small leaf spring came off and is in never never land one side had 6 leafs and that side only had 5 the good thing is that shows something had to come apart.

Sadly enough you are right, at least as I discovered from my experience. Kind of blows the heck out of this little vision you get reading all the rhetoric about Falcon FIT systems and this perception of Lippert engineers sitting around a table with Redwood engineers putting together the best-of-the-best design by committing exclusivity with 100% Lippert parts.

I guess Redwood is Mortal after all.

I took those pictures outside of the Redwood factory. They go from there to "stage 1" where the axles are put on the trailer frame. That frame is for a 36FL

Unhappy Not so lucky!

When you're checking your bolts and nuts on the under carriage don't forget to check the shackle bolts. I had one fall out and the resulting damage cost me over $10,000 to repair. No warranty. RW blamed Lippert and the latter blamed RW. The reason for the high cost is that we decided to upgrade the axles to 8k since our 7 k rear axle and spring was bent. However with the 8k axles Lippert failed to tell us that the axles came with 5/8 inch studs. Camping world had already installed them so we also had to replace the rims and tires. Looks good now but not a happy camper.

Hmmm, My Lippert 8K are only 9/16" studs, but that may be because the rotors are by Kodiak, not Lippert.

Sorry to hear of your woes FarmerJohn. I remember hearing the story, but I thought Redwood stepped up to the plate for you.

So the OEM disc brake kit is Kodiak?

It was in April 2013 anyway - but they change brands at will:
